Finished Fancy That Christmas Art Quilt and closeup

Finished this tonight. I added 4 hoops on the top and will use a gold rod to hang this up..I had this already in my computer and with dh wanting the computer, I decided to put the bottom on. I had a hard time working with this thick felt or whatever you call it. but to me it looks good. I used fabric red and gold ribbon and folded in half and sewed it on the machine. I was very very close to the backing..I use the same type of fabric for the hoops but in red and sewed a couching stitching on the sides..The hoops are about 3 and half inches wide. whew. another one done..lol

Gee I do not have to go anywhere to have some news..lol so much happens around here and there are two of us living here!!!
We received TWO video cards yesterday and the computer only worked for about 15 and dh turned it off and restarted it about 20 minutes later..it came on but was doing horrible..then it went..turn it off and waited another 20 minutes and this time he did a diagnostic on it and it said it was the memory card..we have 3 of them on my computer..So he took the tower to Best Buy and guess it has a warranty and they will fix it...I could have taken his new gun to his head for not doing what I wanted to do..I told him next time this happens I will hail a cab and do what should be done..take it back to where you buy it!! Anyway it is over and in about 5 days I will soon have my computer up and running..I think..it might take longer for them to fix the tower..but they will be able to tell me what is wrong with it..
Dishwasher is hooked up and it has a little tiny leak and he will fix it tomorrow. This is the longest running dishwasher we ever had. The full load runs one hour and 45 minutes and the load I will use runs an hour and 15 minutes..oh well, I love it anyway and we have a 5 year warranty on it..lol have a great Sunday...hugs, Lorraine
